with this, the reckoning. put up or shut up, d day. president obama through down the gauntlet. he demanded congress pass a potent immigration reform bill, one that fiks the problem of decades, deals with the 12 million people here illegally, stops the illegal hiring and exploitation of worgers. so the challenge is out there right now right there in tonight's news packed and ready for tomorrow's newspapers. will it explode into action, light a firecracker under the republicans? will it detonate an avalanche of action driving teeth into the reform, ending the perennial talk that's led to nothing or to the old bogus reforms of the past. will the politicians get real or play more games of ethnic fear, economic exploitation and wedge politics? was today the end of all that? that could be possible? let's take a hard look with chuck todd. you heard all my questions. i'm holder than you, i have been through simpson mazoly. we were -- >> i love it's getting a come back. >> we've passed bills that said it's got teeth and it's got amnesty for people who have been here to while. is this going to work
